HOW Pinterest can HELP Your Business?
Pinterest is a new social media platform with a heavy emphasis on image sharing. Users are able to easily post images they find from the internet, or from their computer, or from other Pinterest users. Think of it like a social scrapbook where you can have a collection of nice images, to funny finds.

+You have 100 followers
+10 of that 100 followers, repin it. Each of the 10 have 50 followers. (10x50)
+Another 5 repins are done from the 50. Those 5 followers have 100 followers each (10x5x100)
So from your 100 + (10x50=500) + (10x5x100)=5600 users globally who have seen your pin!
